Black Snake Moan (2006)

 I first stumbled across Black Snake Moan totally by accident. I’d never seen any promo for it, never seen the trailer, never even knew it was supposed to be on TV. I don’t know why though. Because it’s a great picture and has a star studded cast. Samuel L. Jackson, Justin Timberlake, and Christina Ricci.

Ricci plays a nyphomatic small town bicycle whom Jackson finds beaten and abandoned on the street outside his house in rural Mississippi. He takes her in and uses somewhat unconventional tactics to nurse her back to health and gives her a fatherly education in life and blues music.

When Justin Timberlake, Ricci’s boyfriend, is discharged from the army, he returns to the town and misinterprets the pair’s relationship with dramatic consequences.
